'Tis the season for family photography. This time of the year is always busy at Ridgeway Portrait Design with families wanting to get their family's portrait done while everyone is at home. This year was no different; we had a record numer of families in this last quarter and we thought it would be nice to feature a few of our clients who have been in recently.

The first of features is the Johnson family. They have been having their family portrait taken every two years for over 10 years. I wish I could find some of the older portraits, but I do have the last 3 portraits; the last one taken this fall. 

Steve has his own business doing gutters and siding; Kristen is a nurse and Jacob is their 12 year old son. We are honored that they travel so far to be photographed.

This is why we do what we do. Family. It's what life is all about. We love the Johnsons and are happy to be featuring their last 3 portraits for you.

I treasure all of my family photos. My niece & nephews grew up in Germany & photos are the only thing that allowed me to keep up with their growth & maturing. It made me sad to have missed my nephew, Brenden's, senior homecoming & graduation. He's back now going to SIU-Edwardsville, but still, I'm missing his brother and sister's growing up. That family photography keeps me feeling a part of their lives and having them displayed in my home made me realize how lucky I am to have such a great family.

Do you miss Grandma or Grandpa? Do you have a portrait displayed somewhere in your home that you can just go look at?

Are you missing those kids that are off to college? I catch myself just looking at my family photograps from time to time and realize that I am very lucky to have them.

Let yourself and your family enjoy a professional photograph them. John can make everyone look great individually as well as part of a wonderful group.
